The Peplum waists have made rapid appearances on jackets and tops; to skirts, dresses and even trousers. I’m sure like many, when I saw the trend emerging I thought it was the exact look that us women are told to stay away from; and believe it or not, the look can actually do a lot for you. The Peplum aims to accentuate the hips, whilst simultaneously making the waist look smaller. With the right fit, it can be flattering for almost everybody! The Peplum is perfect for if you need to hide the bulge, or create the illusion of curves.

Top tip #1: This trend works best for women of an hourglass shape, as it helps to define. To find out which body shape you belong to, Click Here.

Top tip #2: You may want to avoid this look if you have a fairly short waist, as the Peplum tends to exaggerate the measurements.
